Situated in a semi-rural location on the Northern outskirts of Horsham, this Grade II listed quintessential Sussex farmhouse dates back to the 16th Century and enjoys a wealth of character features. The property occupies a plot of approximately 2.9 acres, with views at the back towards the adjoining farmland.
The property has been extended over the years and now provides flexible and spacious accommodation. A particular feature of the house is the snug with original Horsham stone flooring and a wood burning stove in the inglenook fireplace. This provides additional heating and hot water to the radiators. The kitchen/breakfast room is spacious enough to accommodate a dining table and benefits from an oil fired AGA and terracotta flooring. The formal dining room, adjacent to the kitchen, is perfect for hosting bigger family gatherings. There is a separate utility room providing additional storage and laundry facilities. The main reception room has access to the garden on the western side via the double patio doors. The boot room, housing the boiler and the hot water tank, is excellent for storing coats and boots, and has a door to the garden.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dressing room, which could be used as an occasional single bedroom or nursery.
Outside, the property has plenty of parking for numerous vehicles, double garage and outbuildings; some of them in need of repair, incorporating a small timber barn with stabling.
